ABC’s long-running show is here again! Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 is ready to hit our screens soon. The previous season ended with multiple major cliffhangers. Hence, fans have countless questions that the showrunners need to answer. Fortunately, here we have everything you need to know about the latest installment.
Initially released in 2005, the series has completed its fifteen long seasons. The medical drama has been consistent enough to win several accolades every season. With a total of thirty-eight Prime Time Emmy Awards and many Golden Globes, the dramatic comedy deserves to be a fan favorite. Grey’s Anatomy has now become an essential part of our Thursday routine.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 16: Will Jackson Return?
Season 15 finale has kept us in the dark when it comes to describing Jackson Avery’s (Jesse Williams) fate. After a fight with his girlfriend Maggie (Kelly McCreary), the character just disappeared into the fog. He is neither seen nor talked about since then. Hence, fans are left wondering if he will ever return to the series again.
According to recent reports, actor Jesse Williams is all set to make his Broadway debut in 2020. He’s successfully landed the role of Darren Lemming in Richard Greenberg’s Tony Award-winning play, Take Me Out. Hence, there were speculations that Jackson’s disappearance is due to Jesse’s new project. This fueled doubts about his presence in the upcoming installment.
Fortunately, showrunners did not take long to trash all such speculations. It was later announced that Jesse is sure to reprise his role in Grey’s Anatomy. Jackson’s disappearance is referred to as ‘creative.’ Hopefully, the character will return with all his charm again in the upcoming season.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 16: Cast Updates
The exact list of cast members is yet to be confirmed by ABC. However, we’re pretty sure that actress Ellen Pompeo will be back as Dr. Meredith Grey. Moreover, other actors, including Giacomo Gianniotti and Chandra Wilson, will reprise their roles as Andrew and Miranda.
On the other hand, it’s hard to say if James Pickens and Justin Chambers will be back as Richard and Alex or not. The characters were fired due to the insurance scheme. However, actors including Jake Borelli, Greg Germann, and Chris Carmack are all returning in the upcoming season. All three of them have been promoted as series regulars for the next installment.
